Helpers, Heroes and Liberators
Commemorating the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe

Coming soon

Spring 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi death camps, the death of Anne Frank, and end of World War II in Europe. To commemorate these monumental events which altered the course of history, The Anne Frank Center USA will present two special exhibitions and series of programs that honor the victims, survivors and “upstanders” of World War II—the helpers, heroes and liberators. By focusing on personal stories of Holocaust survivors and the righteous rescuers who helped so many, the Center will honor the memory and legacy of Anne Frank and all those who perished 70 years ago. These programs reaffirm our commitment to ensuring that new generations know this essential history and learn to apply the lessons of the Holocaust to today’s world.

All commemorative events are free for Holocaust survivors
